I have worked at the Stanley Center for Peace and Security (formerly the Stanley Foundation) since 1987, and I feel very fortunate for all the opportunities the foundation has given me. After advancing through a number of positions, I am now president. Here is my Stanley Center bio.
At the center, I lead an outstanding team of professionals focused on nuclear weapons, conflict and violence, and climate change. This work is advanced through strategic plans and intentional tactics including policy analysis, dialogue, outreach, and networking with key players in international institutions, world capitals, and civil society.
I came to the center to be the associate producer and co-host of the foundation's weekly public radio program Common Ground. During my time on Common Ground, we added hundreds of new stations, expanded the show to a full hour, reported from a dozen different countries, interviewed hundreds of people, and won many awards. The show ended in 2004, but I still miss it and think it was an outstanding platform for the center.
Some of my favorite programs from Common Ground are available on the Web with transcripts and mp3 files:
The center also produced some fantastic radio documentaries and found unique ways to use the content in a variety of formats. And we won a number of awards for these. They include:
*Interview with Kofi Annan.
